Texans tight end Owen Daniels signed his restricted free-agent tender offer, the team announced Friday. The one-year deal is worth $3.168 million.
Daniels, 27, who ranks second in franchise history in receptions (207) and receiving yards (2,501), missed the last eight games of the 2009 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He is still recovering, although he has been present at the team’s offseason training activities, signing an injury waiver to participate.
If Daniels hadn’t signed the offer by June 15, the Texans could have reduced the tender to 110 percent of his 2009 salary, which would have been $3.0712 million.
So at least one more year in H-Town for OD. Question is whether he's here in 2011. Given the situation at TE and OD's desire for the security of a big money, long-term deal, I'm guessing this is the last year we have the privilege of watching OD ply his trade as a Texan. Agree?
